The Ethics, Law, and Society (ELS) certificate program is designed to encourage the study of normative and value issues in the humanities and social sciences. As ethical competence becomes increasingly important in professional life, students who aspire to careers in the law, the health professions, or business need to be able to demonstrate formal training in ethics. Moreover, competency in ethics requires a broader understanding of the complex relationship between the normative enterprises of law, morality, and politics.
The certificate program in Ethics, Law, and Society requires students to take two courses in philosophy, one of which must be Ethics (PHI 4661), two courses in political science, and one course that takes a normative approach or addresses normative issues in a third discipline, e.g. anthropology, communications, sociology, women’s studies, or criminal justice, nursing, medicine, etc. For additional information contact Dr. Barclay Barrios at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (561) 297-3838. Applications for the ELS certificate program can be obtained from Dr. Barclay Barrios.
